This is a PROJECT BOAT
PLEASE READ before contacting seller.
Currently moored in dry dock at Lee Vally Marina in Standsted Abbots.
This has been home for almost 8 years. Sad to let her go as she’s been so reliable but due to life changes. She would be perfect as a project boat so someone good at a bit of DIY. Looking for a quick sale as she been dry docked for 2 years.
Built in 1973 she is a 45” Steel hulled narrowboat built with plate of approx. 1/4“ thickness. She is powered by a single BMC 1.5 litre 4 cylinder diesel engine, which provides propulsion via hydraulic drive system to an external, outdrive.
She has a centre cockpit or wheelhouse, which is sited approx. 10’ from the stern deck. The hull is a V and a large centre keel. There is a U shaped Skeg beneath the outdrive. The main electrical distribution panel is located in a cupboard beneath the helm.
The main engine calorfier and diesel tank are located beneath the centre cockpit floor. The hydraulic tank is sited under the port gunnel.
Inside the main living area, head room is 5ft 5”. The kitchen needs to be installed, i.e. sink and gas cooker. Easily done by someone who knows how or a registered gas plumber!
